Jack worked in the next cubical to me at Maritz in 1973. He was there about three months while waiting to start a design business. He had a very successful career and was well respected in St.Louis.

another design by Jack Thorwegen created while working at Maritz Motivation Company.

I enjoyed working at Maritz for eleven years and left,not because I wasn’t having a lot of fun creating illustrations, but because I wanted to start my own illustration business in 1980.I wanted to show sum of the creative art by other artists at Maritz and to show that some of this art still looks current.
